Getting back on topic how rough did the bolt break? Is there a little ridge on the remnant with which you could grab a hold of it?

I broke one off in my Legacy and DUCT-TAPED the VC to the head. I took it to my job, and a guy used a lock-picking tool to snag a little ridge and work the bolt out.

I recommend replacing the bolts as well when you do this. They've been sitting in the engine for years, doing nothing but expanding and contracting with heat. It's no wonder they're weakened.
